Rice cooked in beef broth, with onions, saffron, and Parmesan.

1 cup beef broth 250 mL
1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted 7 g

Before you start

A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as side dish.

Method

  1. Finely chop the onion. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (which will take about 20 min).
  2. Melt the oil and butter in a saucepan. Add the onion then sauté 2-3 min, until it becomes translucent. Add the rice and toast the grains 1-2 min (until translucent), with constant stirring, then add the saffron.
  3. Cook the risotto until the rice is creamy but still al dente, about 20 min.
  4. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, then let the risotto stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste, then serve.

Somewhere in there shouldn't it say to add the broth to the risotto? I added it a bit at a time, and it really was fabulous. The broth I used was very salty so I ended up skipping hte parmesan which would've added more salt. Even my very picky sons asked for more, and my husband who hates risotto said it was "actually pretty good."
